If there’s one thing you love, it’s spoiling the ones you care about, including yourself.
My guess is you’re pretty popular, but make sure your generosity doesn’t come at a greater personal cost – credit card interest.
You’re the kind of person more likely to break your budget – whether because you love so much or you love shopping so much!
So, set yourself some immovable boundaries. If you can manage a credit card, can you decrease your limit – and lee-way to impulse spend?
If for you a credit card can get out of control, switch to a debit card that you have to load up with actual money first.
And there’s always good old-fashioned layby – the wait with which might wean you off the love of the instant gratification buzz. Because, when you think about it, if you over-spend now it curtails your ability to keep spending in the future. And you won’t love that.
